I managed to sneak back a few days later, with a little more time on my hands, and picked out another 13.4 metres. That's 33.3m of fabric, for $24. I asked why they had so much fabric (there were boxes and boxes of it - lots of 1980's polyesters), and they said that a church had a fabric sale, and had donated all the leftovers.
That's my 33m+ pile of new fabric, all washed and ready to be sewn. the pieces range in size from .7m to 6.5m. Most are cotton (or blended) knits.
- The top 2 fabrics have silver threads through them, and one piece has a flower design, and the second is snakeskin (what the heck am I going to do with those??)
- the first blue from the top is 4m of a lightweight denim type fabric with a herringbone pattern to it (pants??)
- the grey/blue/black fabric just under the white knit is a polyester that I plan to make a skirt out of
- the blue/green fabric directly under it is interesting - it's a fine tulle with a plush pattern of flowers - maybe a princess dress for a little girl (good thing I have one of those!)
- everything below that is a knit (except for the piece of animal-print polar fleece).
- the green and blue fabrics will probably be pajamas for DH
- the blue print (polyester knit) will be a top for me
- the black is 4-way stretch cotton-lycra and has an interesting crinkled texture to it
- the very bottom is a thick, soft double knit that really looks like denim and would make lovely pajamas
